Rituel de Fille is making a bold statement in the world of green beauty. Combining a unique and powerful aesthetic with natural ingredients, the makeup they create tells a story: their lipsticks are either “forbidden” or “enchanted”, their blushes reflect an “inner glow”, and their versatile eye shadows are “eye soots”. I’ll be reviewing each of these products.
The shade of this Inner Glow Cream Blush is in Rapture, and it’s a beautiful, natural-looking pink that I would recommend for most skin tones. It’s described as “the pink from cold winter days spent outside”, which is suiting. The color looks very natural once it’s blended out on the cheeks, and although it’s definitely on the pink side, I’d say it’s a warmish shade of pink. It complemented my pale, yellow-toned perfectly, but it should suit both cool and warm complexions alike. One thing about this blush is that it’s very pigmented! Because it’s also on the more waxy side in addition to being so pigmented, using my fingers to apply it isn’t the best idea. What I found works super great and gives the most natural effect is a synthetic brush. In short, this blush is long-lasting, super pigmented, easy to apply, and the color is really natural. They have a few other interesting colors, as well as a bronzer. Contains 0.13oz/3.80g of product and retails for 24$.
Rituel de Fille makes 2 types of lip products: Forbidden Lipsticks, which provide more intense color, and Enchanted Lip Sheers, which in my experience are a bit more subtle while still providing decent pigment. The Forbidden Lipstick I tried is called Love in Madness (24$) and is described as “a bright, vibrant pink that’s beautiful in all seasons.” I see it as more of a berry shade, and it doesn’t look quite that “bright pink” in person as it does on the website. Berry lipstick lovers, here’s one to add to your collection! Swatched on my arm, the reddish tones stand out more, but on my lips, it looks like a rich pink berry color. Very long-lasting yet moisturizing enough to not make your lips dry out. The Enchanted Lip Sheer I tried is in Love-Ache (21$). It’s a warm red that’s subtle enough for everyday wear, and I absolutely love the shade as well as the staying powder. It’s not at all a tinted lip balm as it’s still very pigmented, and I do wear lip balm under it for maximum moisture. I love that both of these lip products are matte, long-lasting on the lips, and don’t transfer.
Last but not least, this lovely Ash and Ember Eye Soot in Serpent de Mer, or “sea serpent” is so much better than I expected. It’s not a loose eye shadow, and it’s not a typical pressed shadow either. It’s also not a cream, but it’s very smooth and velvety. It’s also really pigmented, as are all Rituel de Fille’s products, and you can build up the color really easily. There are really multiple ways of using this shadow depending on how much you build it up, and it can be foiled and used as a liner. This color is a really amazing deep and dirty purple. It’s almost a neutral shade with just enough purple to make it non-boring! If you have green eyes, this is the perfect color to complement them. It has a bit of golden bronzy shimmer that adds even more depth. Very pretty and versatile product.
These swatches are in natural light. Love in Madness has more of a pinky vibe on the lips. Rapture is very pigmented; it’s swatched pretty lightly here. Same goes for Serpent de Mer, which can be built up pretty dramatically.
Rituel de Fille promises very pigmented and long-lasting products, which it delivers on all accounts while using mostly natural ingredients with no parabens. You can buy all of these products from their online store.
